Jan graduated from Iowa State University with a BS in Food & Nutrition/Dietetics. Jan’s early career was focused on clinical nutrition, working as a dietitian at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.
In 1997, she moved back to her home state and back to her roots, so to speak, when she became the first nutrition specialist in the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen.
Jan transitioned to an editorial role in 2000 and is currently the Executive Editor for Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Media, Food. Jan’s edit team creates food content for Better Homes and Gardens monthly magazine, publishes more than 30 newsstand publications annually and all of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks including The Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book and The Better Homes and Gardens Complete Canning Guide. Jan lives in West Des Moines with her husband Drew, their daughter, Jordan, and a very fat cat who shares Jan’s love of frosting.
